question concerning new config file has wrong title

grub (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debconf

running dpkg --configure -a, I was shown the dialog show below during the configuration of a kernel package. The dialog title refers to an unrelated package.

(the 'dpkg --configure -a' run was after an attempt to upgrade from jaunty to karmic which crashed midway)

I think update-grub needs to use db_settitle or db_title.
